Flashback Friday: 2010
A couple days before he passed the kids and I were visiting my parents. My sister's husband is allergic to cats so she had to leave them at home with my parents when she got married. My kids were petting the cats, mostly my 3 year old little man who isn't the most gentle when it comes to "pet softly."
Thomas was a very calm, gentle, but anti-social cat... usually when we come over he goes into hiding. However, this time he just laid there oddly and allowed my son to pet him.
I warned my sister I thought the cat might be dying and it broke her heart. She was very upset and I felt terrible for saying it - but I wanted her to be aware that even I noticed something wasn't right and to prepare... Sadly, he passed away two days later.
It is in Thomas' honor that I dedicate today's Flashback Friday post; thank you for being part of my sisters (and our) lives!
